Giuseppe Sapori - Oia Sunset

The famous as beautiful sunset in Oia, Santorini. Personally, the most beautiful sunset and exciting I’ve ever photographed, not surprisingly, the place in August was very full of people everywhere over each other trying to capture a sunset. To take this shot I come on my place around 3 hours before, around the sun goes down I was surrounded by hundred people 🙂

To figure out how many people were in the village of Oia just look carefully along the streets of the village, you will notice a human chain along the entire route of the roads. Once at home I made a very big job of editing on this picture. I wanted a wide photo but with a little more defined to the village and in the center, so I decided to make a partial crop to focus more towards the center and remove part of the walls of the houses that were within the frame. But the main difficulty was to eliminate and reduce the visual impact of the hundreds of people who had in the frame, in addition to the elimination of antenna that I was in front and I could not erase in any way except with Photoshop. From thecomparison you can better understand what I mean
